Whisky Reviews for Girvan 2007 DT

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.50 points

  1. Gloin scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The smell is alive and appetizing, the alcohol is noticeable but not disturbing. The profile is unexpectedly fresh, therefore independent and exciting.
    The taste goes well with the smell, even if the fruitiness decreases a bit. The finish is somewhat one-sided in comparison, but still a pleasure.
    Good headstrong grain.

    • Nose
      Fresh, tangerine, grapes, some cassis, menthol, strawberry, sweet red wine, removes earthy notes
    • Taste
      Appearance, medium body, sweet and sour, blackberry, tart wild strawberry, some chocolate, grape, white wine towards Gewürztraminer, some oak, delicate bitterness
    • Finish
      Now, the oak beats, accompanied by the memory of the fruits, tart but still in the first taste, spicy, quite long

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Has something, like to drink and again. In terms of taste are 47 € something over it, 40 € maybe ... but a few euros for beautiful bottles, micro-edition, Octave, CS ... goes without saying.
    • Nose
      Slightly snappy (53% OK, easy to dilute), sweet-and-sweet, sugar cookies, honey, some solvents, fresh sawdust, a hint of apricot
    • Taste
      first sugar cookies, popcorn, honey, milk chilli ... then the cookies are burning, the honey is getting darker, coffee, resin, solvents
    • Finish
      long, hot, sharp and a bittersweet bittersweet on the tongue, camillian and cocoa, feels unusually thick and sticky for so young stuff
